Who Will Be Crowned As “Winner” In a “Three Horse Race” Windows, Android or iOS?
In a World of Smartphone Wars, there has been a fierce encounter between Google Android, Apple iOS and Microsoft Windows which is now been tagged as “The Major Three Ecosystems”. Google’s Android OS has made more than 50% of the SmartPhone sales. The success is due to the fact that Android is found on multiple iterations across handsets manufactured by renowned companies like Sony, LG, Samsung and Motorola. This figure puts forward a clear picture that the Android Phones will continue to grow and flourish in the Smartphone era. iOS is only available on Apple products. Apple’s iPhone have become influential across the world and have been transformed as the golden standard of the Smartphones. The unreleased iOS 6 version with its unique features is creating a thrill among the iPhone Users and will be a limited range of expensive and high end Smartphones. But this won’t stop the iPhone lovers from buying it. With a goal to take over the SmartPhone Market, Microsoft had partnered with Nokia to create a new global mobile ecosystem and with Windows serving Nokia’s primary Smartphone Platform, it was now a three horse race. This was a competitive move by the two technology giants to shake hands together for a bright future of the Windows SmartPhone. Nokia has the technical ability to manufacture wide spectrum of mobile phones and with the introduction of Windows SmartPhone, it can held itself in this competitive market that can give rise to flood in Windows Mobile Apps. RIM, the creator of Blackberry handsets, is the latest victim that has reported a US$518 million loss in the last few months. Other mobile phone OS such as Symbian, Bada appear to be non-existent in the market. Windows Mobile Phones are creating a buzz in the Smart-phone Market and is proving to be a tough contender for Apple who is vocal about its iCloud and Android for its sync services and free apps for Android across its devices. The future of the Windows Smartphone seems to be bright and will endeavor a richer Windows Phone App market in the coming years. All eyes are now set on the three horses to battle and will be interesting to see who achieves the top position.
